Hi there,

 

I installed a web radio as a web application. Work perfect but we can't control sound like in tab. This could be a great feature.

 

My 2cts.

Hi,
doesn't that web radio that you use offer a volume control on their own website?
most online radios do. I added Spotify web player as PWA and it has its own volume control.
I take the example of a web radio and it's true but it's not true for every app. I like the idea to control sound on every tab, even if it is in a standalone PWA app.
The thing is, even the normal browser windows and tabs don't have a fixed volume control, let alone the PWA versions where the UI is very minimal and compact.
that isn't a problem either, because a browser is Not a media player software like VLC.

Microsoft added Global Media Controls button to the toolbar and many people protested and then Microsoft added a flag to be able to disable it.

It is the duty of every website developer to make their website UI comfortable for its viewers. Most of the websites already have a volume control, if one of them don't, then you should report it to their developer as a feedback to implement it.

you can also use these extensions to have what you want and the extension can be used in both normal tabs and PWAs

Didn't know that. Strange. I agree that developers can add it. Thank's for your discussion ;)

@RichardC64 

 

Sure, you're welcome :)

 

P.S

Global Media Control is disabled by default, to enable it:

from here: edge://flags/

and you get this:

(you have to play something First such as an audio or video for the button to appear)

P.S 2:

when you install one of those extensions from my previous post, you will be able to use them like this in PWA UI app:
